Pumpkin Walnut Cake

Pumpkin Walnut Cake
Canned pumpkin replaces some of the fat found in traditional layer cakes while keeping it moist and rich-tasting. And instead of butter, we got away with using just a little canola oil.
For the glaze, mix up some maple syrup and milk and you can skip all the sugar and butter called for in more traditional toppings.
1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
3¼4 teaspoon baking powder
1¼4 teaspoon baking soda
1¼2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1¼2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1¼4 teaspoon salt
1¼4 teaspoon ground allspice
1¼8 teaspoon ground cloves
3¼4 cup organic sugar or sucanat
1¼4 cup canola oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1¼2 cup canned pumpkin
1¼4 cup 1% low-fat milk
1¼4 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
maple cream sauce
1¼2 cup low fat milk
1¼2 teaspoon cinnamon
1¼2 cup maple syrup
Preheat oven to 350°.
Combine first 8 ingredients (pastry flour through cloves) in a small bowl, whisking until well blended. Combine sugar, canola oil, and vanilla in a large bowl, stirring until blended. Whisk in egg, then stir in pumpkin.
Add flour mixture to pumpkin mixture, alternating with the low-fat milk, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Pour batter into a 9-inch-diameter cake pan coated with cooking spray; sprinkle evenly with walnuts and bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until cake springs back when touched lightly in the center. Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove cake from pan and continue cooling on wire rack.
To make the sauce, combine milk and cinnamon in a small heavy-bottomed saucepan. Cook over low heat until mixture just begins to boil; immediately stir in syrup and continue cooking until sauce thickens slightly.
To serve, cut cake into 8 wedges. Place each wedge on a serving plate and drizzle maple cream sauce on top.

39th Annual Historical Dainty
Dates: 7/27/2013 – 7/27/2013
The Dainty contest was first introduce to Germantown by German immigrants that settled in Germantown in the 1860's. The children's game at that time was revised in 1971 for adults 45 and older. It was revised by Mr. George Hauck and Mr. Charlie Vittner for a customer appreciation day for Mr. Haucks' family store, which is still in operation today, since 1912. The game consist of a 3" stick tapered on each end and a 3' stick tapered on one end. Object of the game is to lay the smaller stick on the road and hit the tip of it by using the larger stick making it airbourne. The person that hits it the longest distance win's the huge trophy. The shortest hit hops the distance of the longest hit on one foot with a basket of lemons.There is always live music from various bands on a yearly basis, the best homemade bologna snadwich's, good ole pickles, potato chips and cotton candy for the children, and always very cool refreshemnts for the adults. It is now played in the area of Schnitzelburg, which was incoroprated in 1971 as well. Feel free to contact me Gary Allen @1-502- 551-2402, for futher details if needed.
